        At least if you blow a tire and wrap yourself around a tree you'll leave some sweet bass behind for posterity... On second thought, I'd maybe go for the tires.

        initial impressions are it's not the panacea some may say it is. or, like some say, 85% is frequency response. That other 15%, tho, might be rather beguiling.

      AN dealer managed the upsale. Hemp 8" drivers & silver coil 1" tweeters; basically AN-J/E SPe without the silver cabling. Burn-in commence!

      ok-shit all over me, but revisiting EL-8O, Gumby-->Cavali LC balanced ain't too shabby. Tipped up/bass light, but sub bass has good control.

        also, haven't heard EL-8O headstage this well so far...

        That sucks! Hopefully it is not too expensive to fix

        Foam surrounds are supposedly cheap to fix but I I get scared of doing it wrong.

        We'll see what the local AN dealer says. Peter Q probably spec'd some oddball foam density and proprietary glue after a bazillion different auditions, so I wouldn't really trust just sending the driver off to PE for generic stuff, or doing it myself with a generic kit. but, who knows...

      no dice on the 1950s sylvanias, one tube dead. spent several hours farting around with tubes.

        Pvane UK-6SN7 are "best" overall IMO, YMMV, YOLO whatever. Followed by RCA 5692, then Sophias. Different flavors.

        @zerodeefex: Yellow or green lettering? I've got a pair of 1950 2-hole, black plate bottom getter Sylvanias that I havent tried yet. I'll pop them in this morning and give a listen.
